POISONS OP THE SKIN
Walking through the park yeter
fjr morning, 1 found the crevice
in thf bark of the treei peppered with
clutters of eggt of the tussoek moth.
.When thii lot hatchet out the leaves
of the treei will show the effects of
the invasion of the hungry horde.
There wilt come into this ofhee a
fair number of letters asking what
can be done for the skin ditcate due
to this caterpillar. .
The moths that strip the clmt of
New England also produce a kind
of eruption on the hands of the good
New England folk, which in turn
causes many of them to write to me
for help. :
Knight quotes our old friend, Henri
Fabre, greatest and most practical of
all the naturalists, as having a simple
and effective remedy for the derma
titis due to tussock moths.
He mashed up common garden
purslane leave into a mucilaginous
pulp, and applied it to the irritated
skin, The compress of pulp should
he changed as often as it dries out.
The i common name for purslane is
"pussly," or "pufsly grass" the
kind the hogs like so well, and also
the kind Keltogg of Battle Creek
would set the folks to eating.
If a poultice of pursb.ne or "pus
sly" is good for tuwock moth hives,
it ouRht to be good for the eruption
caused by the pussy caterpillar that
Foote writes about as prevailing in
Texas, and perhaps for the "hives"
caused by any and all caterpillar:,
larvae and moths.
Why not try it for poison oak
and poison ivy?.
With all of the moths and their
caterpillars , or larvae, capable of
causing, dermatitis, it has been
proven that the trouble is caused by
certain coarse hairt. It is not the
physical presence of the hair in the
skin which causes the trouble, but
is the presence on them of poisons
secreted by skin glands located at
the roots of the hair.
This reminds us that men have al
ways had the notion that the skin
Shakespeare said it, although there
was no proof, at least no scientific
proof, for a thousand years or mpre.
There is some scientific proof now
that the skin of toads, reptiles, fish
and maybe other animals contains a
moderate dose of poison.
Maybe we ere wiser than we
knew when we developed the habit
of skinning animals before we ate
them. Maybe our savage, wild for
bear learned that trick when they
ate their meat raw. " - TT
Maybe we may some day find ut
whv it is best that human beings are
fittest when they do not crdTd ttf-1
gether; that there is really flicirs
thing as crowd poison, as the BencJi
contended 30 years ago and maybe
we will find that the harmful some;
thing comes from the skin. 1
But all that is fancy speculation.
Let's get back to worms. ,
Here is something substantial.
Tussock moths. brown tailed
moths, and all such are poisonous.
They cause nomething like nettle
rash. The caterpillars are especially)
harmful. The poison is in the hairs.
It comes from glands in the skin,
and Henri Fabre says the remedy is
a purslane poultice.
Stop Worrying, Mary.
Mary J. H. writes: "Some persons
are said to be big boned and some
smll boned. ...
"1. If a person is about 5 feet 9
inches in height, and has small bones
throughout her body, including small
arms and wrists, is this "an indication

Keep Other Children Away.

scarlet fever and was kept 28 days
in the county hospital. It is now 13
days since she left the hospital, and
she has a running nose and swollen
glands in her neck.

and YOU do not need Tanlac.
But how different if you arise un
refreshed, aching in every fiber, un
moved by 'the healthy laughter of the
household.' ' The long day ahead will

And, oh! how many thousands ex
perience this wretched state! Far
and wide the wail is heard from those
who crawl out of bed with the great
est effort and wonder if there is
nothing that can b'. 'ng the health that
will make them feel "fit as a fiddle"
in the morning. They need Tanlac!
What is the matter? Why are they
all tired out in the morning? The
answer is simply that their systems
are clogged and their blood poisoned
from the waste substances that have
been stored up because the digestive
and eliminative organs have not per
formed their proper functions. And
the reason for all this is that too
much hastily eaten food has been
piled into the stomach.
When you feel yourself getting up
tr urifefreshed and ex
hausted.' look for the' symptoms' 'of;
stomach trouble, such ,as dizziness,
nervousness,-' bad taste) in the- mouth
and biliousness. You may be consti-
pated, too, and your liver sluggish or
torpid. Unusual skin pallor, loss of
weight, loss of appetite and inability
to sleep restfully are Nature's warn
ings, and you must look to your di
gestive system or be rp'-' danger of
drifting into some serious disease.
. ; The1 natural action of Tanlac on
the digestive, secretive, assimilative
and eliminative organs is the certain
Safeguard to your' health,' and the
never failing foe of that awful tired
feeling when you get out of bed in
the morning. Tanlac has oroved to
be the best and safest 'tonic, and sys
tem purifier, .stimulating the.digestive
system to its proper functioning, so
the blood' is able to take ud fresh
building material and. is so vitalized
as to be able ' to more thoroughly
eliminate the waste products which
make you feel all tired out.
The cells of all parts oi the body
then receive real healthy nourish
ment, the. shrunken tissues are filled
out, the skin regains its glowing tex
ture and 'the bloom of health. The
eye clears, and with the strong and
normal digestion the whole system is
built up to -the1 ''point where: your
hours of sleep are truly refreshing,
and you get up in the morning fecl
inir "fit as a fiddle.";
It seems the sheerest folly for any-"
one to feel all tired out in the morn
ing when Tanlac affords" the best and
most natural means of keeping in
good '-trim or bringing the system
back to its full and normal powers.
Tanlac 'is sold by all good druggists.-
